What is Sunderland Big Walk?

The Active Sunderland BIG Walk which has been running since 2010 sees hundreds of people of all ages set off on one of the three, eight or 12 mile route options. The walk gives people a chance to get fit and active whilst enjoying the outdoors. BIG Walk is also a great opportunity for groups to sign up and fundraise for their own chosen charities.

Walkers can enjoy the atmosphere with the pre-event sing along with a Rock Choir before getting involved in free Active Sunderland family activities.
